In a time of corporate cutbacks, and single-parent families threaten
The term "mentor" dates back to ancient Greece when Odysseus first entrusted his friend Mentor with the education of his son, but the practice has existed in virtually every culture in history. Today, mentoring is one of the most talked about concepts in business, education, and sports.
In a time of corporate cutbacks, and single-parent families threaten to leave us with fewer role models and teachers, mentoring is more vital than ever. As applicable in a boardroom as a living room, Tao Mentoring reinterprets and revitalized the concept of mentoring by incorporating the ancient Taoist teachings of balance give and take, self-reflection, simplicity, openness to others, and sharing of ourselves.
Outlined in brief, browsable sectionseach of which opens with a single principle shown in text and elegant Chinese and English calligraphyTao Mentoring draws upon parables, contemporary anecdotes, examples from such classics as the Tao Te Ching and The Art of War, as well as the authors' own successful partnership. It offers a practical and insightful introduction to an entirely new way of seeing and participating in our work, families, friendships, and communities.
